Skip to comments.Michelle Obama dazzles in New York, wearing diamond bangles by H-Town's Katie Decker ($42K cuffs)

That was no ordinary bling on the wrist of First Lady Michelle Obama at the DNC fundraiser in New York Tuesday night. Those fancy diamond cuffs were the creation of 23-year-old Katie Decker, whose namesake jewelry line has been making a serious splash since her graduation from Texas A&M two years ago.
The native Houstonian is over the moon with the fab pub that photos of the first lady in Katie Decker are already providing. Michelle Obama's stylist picked up the bracelets at Katie's showroom in Fragments in Soho. You can see more photos of the Obamas from the evening here by checking out the Gotham Hall event.
If you've been saving your nickels and dimes, the cuffs are available locally at Judith Ann Jewels. The First Lady wore Katie's Lotus cuff priced at $15,000 with 2.9 carats of diamonds, her Gothic cuff at $15,350 with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 with 1.73 carats in diamonds.

... YES, AND SO IS THE BRACELET!
... YES, AND SO IS THE BRACELET!
my thought exactly...one is classy...together they diminish one another...just saying...
These 2 are shameless.......one and DONE.
Is she kissing Obama or the teleprompter? Well, actually, I guess it doesn’t matter really because they are both one in the same.
Don’t be jealous, EVERY company he or his wife have visited, supported or used as designers (think dress designer), has gone out of business. Unfortunately for this aspiring young person, her business just received the Obama kiss of death. Remember the designer for her (Moochelle) clothes? Se went bankrupt in months...
2x4? More like 10x16...
What is it with the word “youth” now? This is not directed at you personally but every news article now refers to blacks as “youths”. Apparently this has taken over now, your use of black and youth in the same sentence was redundant. :-)
I know! That side kiss thing is like those air kisses you give people you don’t want to touch with your lips, not for your own husband!!
Trailer trash chic....high-dollar pricetag!
She can’t stand to even touch the zero. LOL! I couldn’t either! :)
FYI .. link on Drudge is now to the Houston pub site.
They really look uncomfortable/award it this photo don’t they? No really they look terrible together here.
As it should be.

Hey #AttackWatch ! There’s a moron in the UN class photo who seems to have wandered in to wave at the photog and blocked some dude’s face...

That’s a classic!
I see they included the US Open backwards sweater look. I’m still scratching my head over that one. ;)

Or, she could have bought three beater cars to donate to three out of work youths in the inner city to drive to find work.
She feels so entitled. I think she’d be happier taking all the taxpayers’ money like some queen. Buying three $15k bracelets at a time like this. It’s just ugly.
O M gosh — I missed that buffoonery totally .. need to go on yer list.
Her plan went awry, but Michelle Obama doesn’t mind

Her wardrobe, usually simple and tasteful, is no-frills. Her shoes are sensible, her jewelry minimal.
Those three just look so wonderful together....
Makes me proud to love MY president.
A three way group hug.
I wonder what those three lovebirds do behind the scenes....hehe
I see Obama has his grey hair hat on for this occasion.
Must of been serious.
Nothing but the best for the Queen of Amerika.
I’ve seen models in catalogues that show more affection in their pics than you can see in this one of Prezbo and his wife.
Unbelievable. Thanks for the ping.
Being unable to decide on one piece of jewelry is a sign of immaturity ... rather like a 9-year-old with 16 “Silly Bandz” on at once.
I’m just wondering, because gifts received are not personal property they belong to the citizens of this nation. they should be put in the presidential library, as tacky as they are.
That’s wrong on so many levels.....and prejudicial against dentists!
it is a threesome. Zero, Mo and the tele.
Poll: Obama slips with black voters
I’m pretty much out of the pepper industry for a while, I have a life time supply plus, in a full one gallon jar.
I’m a pickle packer now, I made and gave away 80-90 quarts of my already famous Bread&Butter pickles this year, mostly to my fellow church members. There’s talk of beatification in my church and I don’t discourage it, even though Baptists don’t beatify.
Hat tip to “JustaDumbBlonde” for the recipe.
President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama walk down the stairs from Air Force One upon arrival at Andrews Air Force Base, Md. , Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011.
I don't think I've made much of a dent in my lifetime supply of habanero flakes.
In my humble opinion we cannot afford another four years with Moocheele as the First Lady. Kick them both out!
Way to go Maggie! Thanks to Matt for linking it.
Wow... For the cost of those three bracelets Michelle could have feed several families for a whole year! Her bracelets alone are only 7 grand shy of the median income over the last year for households in state of Wisconsin! And yes, her bracelets cost MORE than my husband made ALL YEAR last year! I don’t care if she spent her own money on them - that’s her right. Just pointing out yet again what a hypocrite she is...
They NEVER look comfortable kissing... He looked more comfortable kissing Hillary in the pic I saw the other day!
Remember when they used to castigate Nancy Reagan for borrowing designer fashions from couturiers? They wanter to pay tax for the use.
